The principal wind players, usually hidden at the back of the orchestra, will take centre stage at Harrogate Philharmonic Orchestra’s first concert of the 2018/19 season. Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante for four Winds showcases the oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn, each taking turns in starring and supportive roles.
The concert, on Saturday 13 October at 7:30pm in the Wesley Chapel, Oxford Street, Harrogate, will open with a miniature Symphony by Mozart (No.32) and close with Debussy’s Suite Bergamasque et Danse, featuring the ever-popular tune “Clair de lune” (“Moonlight.”)
The orchestra will be repeating this concert on the afternoon of Sunday 14 October at the Galtres Centre in Easingwold, bringing the experience of a live orchestral performance to a wider audience.
Tickets are available in advance from the website www.harrogatephilharmonicorchestra.org.uk (with Paypal), P&C Music in Harrogate and Castlegate Books in Knaresborough and on the door priced at £12 for adults (£11 in advance by paypal), £5 students with cards and under 16s and carers assisting wheelchair users are free.
